Last semester, the World Book Fact of Fiction? Student Video Contest invited elementary, high school, and college students to create their own original video on what makes an online site a good source of information.  Now, World Book is asking students, educators, and parents to select the best videos from a group of finalists. 

Online viewing and voting for best student-submitted videos is open through January 31, 2008, on the World Book site (, allowing students, parents, teachers, librarians, and other educators to vote for the student video they believe best portrays the importance of finding reliable information online.

Student finalists in each category (K-8) and (9-college) with the most votes will receive a MacBook and their school a digital video camera.  First- and second-place runner ups in each category will receive video iPods.
